                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory


Package name:           usermode
Date:                   July 18th, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:020

Affected versions:      7.1

Problem Description:

A bug existed in the usermode package that permitted users to reboot or halt the system without having root access. This update removes those files associated with allowing users access to reboot, shutdown, halt, or poweroff the system.


Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this by running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using "md5sum package.rpm".

Linux-Mandrake 7.1:
3ca98a6e5d73cf1e5e75fcce9d862d01 7.1/RPMS/usermode-1.22-2mdk.i586.rpm
448261293ab337fdf2740228a0534ccc 7.1/SRPMS/usermode-1.22-2mdk.src.rpm


To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".

You can download the updates directly from:
ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates
ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:
http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/". Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two above-listed mirrors.
